Thanks all for the information.

Ardamir, not much mention of Tolkien in most of these books, only a couple of sentences apart from Rayner Unwin's George Allen & Unwin - A Remembrancer, which has a lot of information.

The reason that it is so expensive is that HarperCollins think Tolkien fans will ridiculous prices for anything (and they are half right). They will sell a few at this price and then gradually discount, I would have thought. Without meaning any disrespect to the designer, this is really just more pointless Tolkien-related tat (probably not as bad as the kinds of "polystone" tat from Sideshow WETA, but still just tat). Last time I looked, Tolkien wrote books....

I agree. The poster does seem excessively overpriced.

Does anyone know why the price was set so high? I might have paid maybe a fraction of that price.

At that price? No, I don't see much merit in the piece, and I certainly wouldn't pay that much for a poster.

Did anyone bought this print? I'd like to hear some reviews about it.
